The Ensemble Resonances was born from the encounter of young musicians at the Lyon Conservatory, all sharing the same passion for early music. Their musical complicity as well as a common artistic sensibility have forged strong relationships over the years. After a solid training in the best European schools, the five musicians of the ensemble lead an intense musical career in numerous recognized ensembles and orchestras in France and abroad.
With two recorders, viola da gamba, theorbo and harpsichord, Resonances explores the wide and rich repertoire of chamber music of the sixteenth, seventeenth and eighteenth centuries.
Their performances were praised in numerous concerts in France and Europe. Un salon de musique, dedicated to French music of the late seventeenth and early eighteenth century, is their first recording.
